In this gist I will explain how to install ZNC from source in Ubuntu/Debian, and CentOS/Fedora/Red Hat Linux.
####Ubuntu/Debian: (I recommend installing as root if possible, or using sudo otherwise).
- First, install the required dependencies.
apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libperl-dev pkg-config
- Next, install the OpenSSL Development package, which is required to use SSL with ZNC.
